Settlement ends Ford marriage

DETROIT (UPI) - A steely Henry
'Ford II and his tearful jet-setting
:second wife, Cristina, officially
dissolved their 15-year -marriage
yesterday by agreeing to an out-of-
courtsettlement believed to ru into the
millions of dollars.
The settlement was announced after
nearly two full days of intensive private
negotiations designed to save the
celebrated couple a lengthy and messy
public divorce trial..
Neither party had contested the
divorce; sought under Michigan's no-
fault divorce law.
"THE PLAINTIFF wishes to an-.
nounce that a settlemient has been
amicably reached between Mr. and Ms.
Ford," said A. Robert Zeff, Ms. Ford's
attorney. -.
Zeff said that under provisions of the
agreement, terms of the property set-
-tlement could .not be disclosed.
However, both Zeff and Milton Miller,.
ttorney for the balding auto magnate,

said they were satisfied with the.
"It was a good, amicable, fair set-
tlement for both sides," Miller said.
"He's (Ford) very pleased that *he
could very quietly and amicably end
thi' marriage this way."
FORD, 62, and his blonde, Italian-
born wife sat expressionless as they
waited in the courtroom for Wayne
County Circuit Judge John Kirwan to
reconvene the court session.
Mr. Ford, the grandson of automobile
pioneer Henry Ford, sat with his arms
crossed over his chest. Ms. Ford,,49,
toyed nervously with the sunglasses she
was holding.
Ms. Ford, called to the witness stand
to attest to the agreement, wiped a tear
from her eye and put on her sunglasses.
She gazed intently at the rings on hers
left hand as she told Zeff she agreed to
the settlement.
"I'm sad and relieved," Ms. 'Ford
tpld the crush of reporters in her accen-

ted English.
Following announcement of the set-
tlement, Ford quickly left the building
with a final wave and curt "good-bye"
to reporters gathered in the hallway
outside the courtroom.
Although neither side had discussed
the type of settlement expected in the
case - which went to court ironically

on the couple's 15th wedding anniver-
sary - Ms. Ford reportedly was
seeking at least $10 million to $15
Ford's net worth had been estimated
in earlier court records at about $70
Ford's property settlement with ;his
first wife of 23 yea's reportedly was
between $16 million and $20 million.

deadline imposed by Carter.
Some Western diplomats here believe
the Soviets and the Soviet-backed
Afghan government will not 'be able to
put down a 21-month rebellion by
Moslem rebels without reinforcements
being sent from the Soviet Union:
A Western diplomat said, "There
must be some military experts in the
Kremlin advising the Politburo at this
very morrent that only 208,000 more
men would enable them to see the light
at the end of the tunnel."
A DIPLOMAT -from a non-aligned
nation said, "The Russians are in a ,
trap. They cannot retreat without
losing face and they cannot go forward
without, getting more and more emn-
breuled in an inextricable situation."
The Russians have intervened again-
st mutinous Afghan army 'units, but
they seem reluctant to deploy their in-
fantry against the rebels.
Despite the Soviet troop presence in
Afghanistan, the rebels are in virtual
control of the main supply route from

Pakistan, attacking civilian traffic at
will and outmaneuvering Afghan
soldiers sent to "pacify" the area.
In Australia; Prime Minister
Malcolm Fraser announced that
Australian intelligence has also con-
firmed another rebel claim - that the
Soviet forces in Afghanistan were out-
fittedwith poisonous gas weapons.
Fraser told parliament Soviet
"defensive gas' units" were "located
without any doubt in Afghanistan"

ted, as well as the incredibly expressive
-{gale-like guitar that enhance both the
original recording and the great ver-
sion in the Rust movie. "Tonight's the
Night" simply does not scare the
.listener like it's supposed to, and it is
not a good choice for an encore. In this
context, it becomes more of an audien-
ce-induced celebration than the haun-
ting dirge that it really should be.
ONLY SIDE THREE really shows
Young's greatness. Along with a great
version of "Cinnamon Girl," Young
puts back to back "Powerfinger" and
"Cortez," in a brilliantly conceived ef-
fort to evoke one of his favorite themes:
the individual trapped in a cultural.
storybook fable with very real, univer-
.se consequences. The reggae touch on
"Cortez" is especially effective, con-
sidering its unexpected appearance.,
The metophors that are used in these
two songs (as well as "Thrasher") are
perhaps the prime eycamples of Young's
uncanny understanding of personal and
social struggle. .
If quality of music were the only fac-
tor involved, Live Rust would certainly
be commendable, but that's not all
'there is. We e' come' to expect

something more from Neil Young, and
that something just isn't here on this
album. Live Rust is a retreading of
various aspects of his career, touching
all bases, but containing no new
material, and therefore, no new
dreams. When you've been jumping all
over for fourteen years, it's frustrating
to stand still and look' back at yourself
instead of moving on.
Neil Young has alWays made it a
point to keep changing ' (see
"Thrasher"), carrying us onto countless
new platforms. If he would have gone
just one step further, this album might
be worthwhile. In the meantime, if
you're just beginning to discover
Young, you might want to try Rust
Never Sleeps, or After the Goldrush, or
Zuma, or... This isn't the place to
start. Almost all of Young's albums
have something great to offer (even
Decade, w hich is far more successful
than Live Rust as a retrospective), and
each is unique. Young's previous live
work, Time Fades Away, was the first
live rock album ever made that con-
tained all new compositions. It showed
a new phase of Neil Young, and its
daring alone revealed plenty. On Live
Rust, nothinig is revealed.
